Wiggin and Dana Partner Quoted in Bloomberg BNA Daily Labor Report

July 27, 2017

Wiggin and Dana Labor and Employment partner, Lawrence Peikes, was quoted in the article, "Proceed With Caution in Discipline for Off-Duty Conduct" published by Bloomberg BNA in the Daily Labor Report.

The article discusses federal and state laws which protect employees off-duty behavior and how employers must take care not to violate discrimination and labor laws. 

Mr. Peikes tells Bloomberg BNA "It's the unusual case where discipline would be imposed based on off-duty conduct, at least where the conduct has no logical connection to the workplace."

He further elaborated by saying, "Some states, most notably New York, have enacted legislation prohibiting employers from imposing discipline based on an employee's lawful off-duty activities."
